    I have been working at Verizon Wireless full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits. College tuition and 401K match. Room for upward mobility and being able to work on bleeding edge mobile technology

    Cons

    Growth in the mobile industry is flat overall as a whole. I fear this could possibly impact upward movement in the the future

    Pros

    Benefits Package
    The actual work thats done was every interesting

    Cons

    Horrible leadership structure (I'm prior military ...14 years....and they literally hire people with zero leasers ability)
    Very corporate environment...you can't voice your opinion on something controversial or they "black list" you
    They cater to minorities

    Advice to Management

    Hire some people for management positions that actually have prior experience leading people

    I worked at Verizon Wireless full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Excellent benefits package and compensation. Flexible work hours. Plenty of opportunities to get promoted, especially if your willing to locate.

    Cons

    Verizon business and Verizon Wireless have merged into one Verizon. That lead to many layoffs. If you want to get promoted, you need to move to different groups, they dont promote "straight up the chain", which to me doesnt always make sense. If your good at what you do, and want to stay in that group, you should be promoted within. This also leads to managers and directors being moved over groups they know nothing about. Having a non technical leader over an extremely technical group is a bad idea.

    I worked at Verizon Wireless full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    LARGE network. Probably some of the most talented people in an IT based environment.

    Cons

    Political network. Perception based decisions rather than reality-based. Very insular - if it's not made here - it's no good. Lack of objective testing oversight.

    Advice to Management

    Quit absorbing companies - than going into LAYOFF mode to regain profits! AT&T will 0Wn you!

    I have been working at Verizon Wireless as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Its a fun job working with enthusiastic clients. Relaxed environment. Days go by quick and days are very low stress. Like the freedom to program for the clients the way I like.

    Cons

    Very few bad things. Only one wellness center employee is actually employed by Verizon - others work through a staffing agency. Seems to be a lack of desire by higher ups to buy new equipment for gym.

    Advice to Management

    Buy more equipment for gyms.

    Pros

    Decent Benefits and Bonus, Good opportunity for learning, the cash cow of Verizon Communication

    Cons

    Not the great company it use to be. Low annual pay raises, promotional pay raises capped, future company growth is limited due to wireless market saturation and numerous mergers.

    Pay to keep talent

    Pros

    Great benefits even for same sex couples.

    Cons

    Supervisors can be aggressive and use their position add a stepping stone so you will probably not have the same supe very long.

    Advice to Management

    Take length of service into account before termination on minor infractions.

    Pros

    Great benefits, and a healthy work environment!

    Cons

    They do not pay as high as some of the other companies, but I think it is because of the benefits they offer.
